    In medieval times the travelling acts were considered the lowlifes of society. Things don't change much.

      I mean honestly, Fascism is rather easy to understand when you understand the symbology of the Fascis: a bundle of sticks, bound together and an axe at the Centre. The analogy being that an individual stick is easily broken, but if the sticks are bound together, they can't be broken. The axe represents the state-power protecting the unified people of the nation.

      It's essentially a branch of socialism that split off and added a nativist and traditionalist spin, rather than the Global Revolution of Marxism.

          @juan altredo i mean people literally do not know what fascism means. They think its synonymous with totalitarianism and evil when its really a beleif based on the family unit, a cohesive comminity, and ones personal responsibility to that community to insure its safety and health.

          There were lots of Americans in the 1920s and 30s who supported Fascism. Including Black Americans!!! Fascism is just another form of socialism and many of the thing that get people jazzed about marxism were the same things that excited people about fascism.

            Another theme! Dont you think THE world becomes fake if everybody just identifie themselfs with THE Good guys Heroes?? A Guy like THE Swedish Elite soldier & war Criminal Jackie Arklöv are just a Anti Hero kind of Hero. He failed over & over again & were was Always others there to pick him Up. THE victims att Sebrenica was not that Lucky. Jackie Arklöv are more or less unintresting but THE way THE Zionist works are brought to THE light. THE Zionists fake history,facts,truth & becomes an Hollywood actor. He put His Friends & himself in danger by pathetic misstakes. It would have Been a piece of cake to investigate others in His unit IF it wasnt for THE fact Croatia & Bosnia was into NATO & Swedish defence forces are also NATO wankers. He was protected by that fact. The problem are that THE Zionist sacrifice others to protect wrong doings and failures using THE old motto once a champ Always a champ.

              Actually Mark Twain has largely been considered the first stand up comedian. he used to travel and tell stories and was rumored to be quite funny.

                  That’s easy...the first mass market, world-wide “stand up” acts worked in pantomime. They were the silent film comedians. Arbuckle, Chaplin, Keaton (with others) were known to the whole world! The fact that they spoke in a different language than current English speaking stand ups is irrelevant. They had audiences ten-times the size of Netflix.

The court jesters has the king as their audience, today we have comedians now as philosopher kings, tyrants almost. Together I call them the cartels of comedy.

                            Not strange at all. Fascists are just soldiers by another name and soldiers are known for thier humor as well as being violent or whatever

                                    Completely Wrong. There were Court Jesters and characters in Greek plays who told humorous monologues. England and Europe had MUSIC HALL who had hosts that were funny. That led to Vaudeville And that led to Coffee ship poetry readings and finally modern stand up.

Etruscans (pre Roman) had theatres in every city state as did the Romans after them. Etruscan being one of the earliest known civilizations but there was probably theatres and acting even before that.

                                                                          From battlefield comedians to unfortunate messengers, jesters played varied roles in courts through the Middle Ages and Tudor period. When we imagine a medieval or Tudor feast, we might picture a jester, the wise fool, running among the guests juggling or telling bawdy jokes while minstrels strum their lutes. But in the 11th and 12th centuries, the title ‘minstrel’, meaning ‘little servant’, was the name given to a wide range of entertainers, including singers, musicians, jugglers, tumblers, magicians as well as joculators or jesters. Both men and women were employed as minstrels and there is a record of a joculatrix* called Adeline owning land in Hampshire in 1086.
